The Home Ministry has ordered the Paramilitary Assam Rifles to deport people or police from Myanmar who cross the border. Sources in the Assam Rifle Guards said that they have been clearly instructed to deport those who have entered India illegally from that country without proper visas or official documents. Recently in Myanmar about 30 policemen secretly crossed the border and entered Assam district in defiance of military government orders. The police told the Assam authorities that they would be severely punished if they did not follow the instructions of their army officers and that they had fled in fear of this. They requested that the government consider them as refugees and grant them asylum. However, the Assam authorities did not know what to do about them. They fell into a dilemma that it was for the center, for the two countries.
The military government in Myanmar continues to be in power. There, Aung San Suu Kyi was detained by the military and placed under emergency for a year. Although many countries have imposed sanctions on Myanmar, they have not backed down. Thousands of protesters are demanding the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and the restoration of democracy in the country. More than 40 protesters were killed recently as police and army opened fire to disperse them. Many were seriously injured. Under these circumstances, the government hopes that seeking asylum in India from that country will only lead to implications for Myanmar if generous action is taken against them. The Home Ministry has asked the Assam Rifles to immediately repatriate eight of the 30 fugitives. The government also demanded that they be handed over immediately. The Center is planning to take any action against the rest of the police.
